Over the last two decades, numerous programs have been created for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) community that never existed before, and now they can be accessed through the CFOne Card.
Whether they served for only one year or for 30 years or longer, veterans and their families remain part of the one-million strong CAF community. As members of that community, they are entitled to access a variety of unique programs and services aimed at maintaining and improving morale and welfare, from enrolment through retirement. Serving individuals, families and the CAF community as a whole, Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) offers a broad variety of such benefits accessible via the CFOne Card.
“It’s about making sure our community members are connected and use the CFOne Card. We want them to access CFMWS programs and services, and to take advantage of all the great benefits this membership has to offer,” said Commodore Sean Cantelon, director general of Morale and Welfare Services.
CFMWS has a simple way to access information about morale and welfare programs at www.cfmws.com/YourServices. This user-friendly online resource provides a detailed catalog of all programs offered by CFMWS to the entire military community. Getting connected allows members to identify what programs and services are needed and provides the dedicated staff at CFMWS with insights into trends and where they need to provide further support.
CFOne membership also opens the door to the offerings of many partners that are helping to bring significant and tangible benefits such as discounts and savings to the CAF community through the CF Appreciation Program. In addition, the CFOne Card provides members with access to online shopping 24 hours a day at CANEX, Canada’s military store, where CANEX Reward Points can be collected with every purchase. Visit CANEX.ca to see members-only pricing and to access the exclusive No Interest Credit Plan.
Veterans and their families can take advantage of travel benefits through CF Getaways, or apply for a complimentary vacation through the Vacations for Vets Program. Getting connected to CFMWS through the CFOne card also offers Veterans an opportunity to participate in contests and free giveaways.
Using their individual CFOne card number, veterans and their families can access DFit for Veterans and Families, a new online resource featuring general fitness and a more family-friendly, total lifestyle approach to active living. Once downloaded, members can access special features focused on active living, online personal training, nutrition planning and much more.
